For the autumn/winter 2014 fashion, it is not enough that you have a super-skinny belt size; you must know how to loop and knot it as seen on the runway of Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, and Burberry.
Just make sure your belt is longer than the typical so that you can play with how you want to loop and knot it.
“Tie the Knot”
Nicolas Ghesquière used razor-sharp black leather belts to loop around like ties on belle du jour outfits for Louis Vuitton. You don’t have to be a master in origami to pull this off. The tip of the belt is V shape, which emphasizes the V for Vuitton.
Burberry uses floral artwork on its belts to become sublime accompaniments for the floral scarves of the outfits. These one-off belts are now in the market for £400.
Break Thick Fabrics
Michael Kors used belts to break up the thick and shaggy fabrics. Most of the belts they used were crocodile skin and luxe ropes.
Crocodile strand loops
Stella Jean used crocodile strand to loop around the blouse and work wear during Milan Fashion Week.
Around Sharp Suits and Around Kimono
Street stylistas like Caroline Issa loops the belt around sharp office suits. There are those, like Philip Lim, who fast forwarded to 2015 and looped their belt around kimono-esque styles.
